I have to toggle Windows taskbar auto hide/unhide frequently. Is there any script/registry/tool that can let me simply double click to toggle the setting?

Try using Aviassin Taskbar Eliminator.

I heard it is a good one.

this tool is nice, thanks! However, the hotkey Alt+T can be easily conflict with many other applications. Also, it hide the taskbar completely, not toggle to auto hide. – Stan Mar 13 '12 at 14:36

You could just leave it hidden and use instead:

You could use the following AutoIT script for showing/hiding the taskbar (or compile it to executable(s) with so you can run this without needing AutoIt)

This example script hides the taskbar, sleeps 3 seconds and shows the taskbar:

Opt('WINTITLEMATCHMODE', 4)
ControlHide('classname=Shell_TrayWnd', '', '')
Sleep(3000)
ControlShow('classname=Shell_TrayWnd', '', '')

The script has been taken from: http://www.autoitscript.com/forum/topic/27505-hide-taskbar/

I found something called Taskbar Eliminator via Google that sounds like what you're looking for.
